            Hey Marty glad to hear you are doing so good, Rick took gemcitabine and tarveva for about 4 or 5 years and did good on it the only reason he stoped is because it came back in his lungs so they said it wasn't working anymore so they put him on taxatere so we'll see how it goes. Don't know if you know it but the company for xeloda has a precription card that helps with co pays took our co pay from 25 to 5.00 just thoug...
